|As an Empath and highly sensitive soul, you may have adopted the belief that you are “different and not good enough to be loved. As a result, you might have started to limit your self-worth by what you do and have taken on identities that are not in your truth. One of the Wood-lesson in the 5-Element teachings is to let go, to define yourself through what you do and the need to be ‘perfect’ – and to realise you have been perfect all along the way. |
You are invited to investigate the powerful gifts that you bring to this world. These gifts are a combination of your soul wisdom and unique life experience – it requires you just to be yourself. You are here to bring new ways of living and unique, unconventional perspectives and solutions.
This is what the world needs; for each one of us is a piece of the whole puzzle. Allow yourself to turn within and freely express your true nature. Act with integrity and be guided by your code of honour. It is now the time to be yourself, to expand and thrive with joy and an open heart.
